Planning your pension!
Not long ago, work meant a 9-to-5 role. This is likely to have been spent with the same employer and ending abruptly when people reach their retirement age. Things are very different today.
People tend to move jobs more frequently and many more of us are self-employed. This is thanks to the rise of the gig economy. Those of us past State Pension age are much more likely to still be in employment. Some, perhaps, choosing to work less hours or even embark on a new career. Equally, the change in pension rules that came into effect in 2015 means that if you want to retire at 55, you can do so.
Thanks also to strides in modern medicine, many can look forward to a retirement that could last a good few decades.
Take control of your future. Whatever your stage of working life, we believe it’s never been as important as it is now, to take professional advice about your pension. To enjoy a comfortable
retirement, especially if you plan to retire early, you need to have saved enough to make this a reality.
The tax breaks available planning your pension in the new world of work on pension contributions (subject to the Annual and Lifetime Allowances) act as a clear incentive to save as much as you can comfortably afford.
